USATF Youth National Championships

We had two athletes competing this past week at the United States of America Track & Field (USATF) Youth National Championships in Bloomington, Indiana. Each athlete had to meet a time, height, or distance to qualify for entry into this meet.

Julia Howard from Greensburg and Greensburg-Salem High School finished 3rd in the Hepthathon, 8th in the High Jump, 5th in the Long Jump, and 2nd in the Triple Jump in the girl’s 15-16 age group. Our other athlete was James Capone from Murrysville and Franklin-Regional High School, who finished 5th in the 400 meter hurdles in the men’s 17-18 age group. The top 8 places medal. We are very proud of these two special athletes.
